Writing Forward turns six

Writing Forward is six years old!

Writing Forward Turns Six

Writing Forward launched on September 1, 2007 and is now six years old, which is pretty exciting.

Every time we celebrate another anniversary, I find myself surprised that the site is still going strong and growing. I’m especially proud that we’ve expanded beyond the blog and have published two books in the Adventures in Writing series with a third one on the way early next year.

None of that would be possible without the wonderful readers and writers who have subscribed to Writing Forward, especially everyone who has shared our posts and books on social media, left positive reviews of the books on sites like Amazon and Goodreads, and helped us build this passionate community of writers.

10 Core Practices for Better Writing is Now Available in More Bookstores




About a month ago, 10 Core Practices for Better Writing became available on Amazon in paperback and for the Kindle.

Now, you can also pick up a copy from Apple’s iBookstore, Barnes & Noble (for Nook), Kobo, and Smashwords.

My goal is make sure the book is available to you in the format you prefer and from the outlet where you like to shop. Let me know if there’s another format or store where you’d like to see it.
